Boomerangs were the world's first heavier than air flying machines, used most famously by the Australian Aborigines, but also found in other ancient cultures in Egypt, stone age Europe and the Indian Sub Continent.
The combination of spin with forward motion causes uneven lift on the wings because at any given time, one wing is rotating forward in the same direction as the flight, while the other is rotating backwards, against the direction of flight.
The uneven lift tries to tip the boomerang over, but just like leaning a moving bike over makes it turn, the boomerang's spin twists the tipping force at right angles and gives the boomerang a curving flight.
